Their Green Thumbs by Hunter Blackwell



Their Green Thumbs


 

 

Mom’s Yard

 

Small chartreuse leaves

kiss camel rocks, swaying

as breeze walks by.

 


Brodnax Plantings

 

Magenta petunias,

half-moon cuts on their bodies-

white tail, swishing jaws.



 


Grandma Savage’s Garden

 

Ivory magnolia

petals float to chestnut

mulch, roots wrapping.
